Why Spaceballs is the Star Wars spoof we need

Andrew Blair Feb 15, 2017

As the Epic Movie team announce they have Star Wars in their sights, might we have a chat about Mel Brooks' Spaceballs, amongst others?

Readers of this site may have read last week's news that there's to be a new Star Wars spoof. This film comes from the team who brought us Date Movie, Epic Movie, and apparently something called The Starving Games which blissfully passed me by. Jason Friedberg and Aaron Selzer make relatively cheap movies that, despite critical maulings, tend to make money at the box office. When I worked at a cinema, an eleven year old boy went to see Meet The Spartans three times, proclaiming it the best film he had ever seen.

Star Wars Spoof On The Way From Scary Movie Team

With the massive success of last year’s The Force Awakens and now more recently Rogue One, it was probably only a matter of time before someone decided to cash in with a Star Wars parody film, and it turns out that someone will be Jason Friedberg along with his writing/directing partner Aaron Seltzer.

Their names may not be too familiar to most, but these are the guys behind the rash of spoof films that dominated the noughties, which began with the first Scary Movie and mercifully concluded (or so we thought) with 2013’s The Starving Games. Now, the duo are back in business, and have turned their attention to the galaxy far, far away with Star Worlds Episode Xxxive=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue.

Yes, that’s actually the title. Catchy, no?

The project will be produced by Covert Media’s CEO Paul Hanson,

Scary Movie screenwriters shooting Star Wars spoof for release this year

Given the enormous popularity of the franchise following the blockbuster success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it was only a matter of time before we got this one…

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, co-writers of the Scary Movie franchise, are working on a spoof of the Star Wars franchise, with the “hilarious” title Star Worlds Episode Xxxive=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue.

“Jason and Aaron are a powerhouse duo who have proven time and time again that they are fully tapped into the what audiences love,” said Paul Hanson of Covert Media. “Their fearless take on pop culture has us beyond thrilled to tackle the world’s most popular franchise with the two of them leading us into a galaxy far, far away.”

Mad Shelia Trailer Is China's Insane Answer to Mad Max

Mad Shelia Trailer Is China's Insane Answer to Mad Max
Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the most beloved movies to come out in a very, very long time. So rare do blockbuster movies connect with both the movie going public and critics in the way Mad Max was able to, which is truly something special. That being the case, it seemed inevitable that there would be some attempts to capture a little of that lightning in a different bottle. The team behind the new movie Mad Shelia decided to just seemingly remake it on the cheap with Asian actors.

The trailer for Mad Sheila recently made its way onto YouTube and is truly something to behold, especially if you are a fan of Mad Max: Fury Road. Maybe not a good something, but it is something. There have been many spoof movies made in the past, it is not a new concept. For 300, it was Meet The Spartans.

'Superfast' Trailer: A 'Fast and Furious' Parody

February 27 is recognized in the United States as the official Day of Jokes, which is slightly different from April Fool's Day, as it's about punchlines not hilarious pranks. In celebration of this little known holiday, Arc Entertainment already released the trailer for their The Walking Dead spoof The Walking Deceased. Now, Ketchup Entertainment has debuted their Fast and Furious parody Superfast. We hope you're in a really good mood, cause if you're not, you're going to hate this!

Superfast follows undercover cop, Lucas White, who joins Vin Serento's La gang of illegal street racers. They're fast and they're furious and they plan to double cross &#160La's crime kingpin Juan Carlos de la Sol who hides his cash in a downtown Taco Bell. The gang's outrageous plan is as daring as it is ridiculous and will see them towing the whole damn restaurant, at crazy speeds, half way across the city.

Fast And Furious Parody Superfast Gets First Trailer

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have made their careers from parodies, coming into their own on Date Movie and Epic Movie, flogging the horse all the way to The Starving Games and the upcoming, or at least proposed, Who the F#@K Took My Daughter?.

This is much the way Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker started out… actually, it’s closer to the way the ended up, with Friedberg and Seltzer’s films being less Airplane! or Naked Gun than Mafia! or An American Carol.

The latest of these spoofs is Superfast, which casts lookalikes for Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in a gag-driven reprise of some of the Fast and Furious series most egregious cliches. Here’s the trailer that I found hanging out, pretty much undisturbed, on Vimeo.

"Epic Movie" Duo Plan "Taken" Spoof

Filmmakers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo behind critically reviled spoofs like "Date Movie," "Epic Movie," "The Starving Games," "Meet The Spartans" and "Vampires Suck," have setup their next project.

The pair will co-write and direct "Who The F#@k Took My Daughter," this spoof aiming mostly at the Liam Neeson-led "Taken" film series.

In the spoof, Ryan Miller is a tough, no nonsense, black leather jacket-wearing type whose daughter is kidnapped. He sets out to hunt down the abductors and rescue her. Peter Safran will produce.

The pair's previous films have grossed a total of $350 million in worldwide box office thus far, though their two most recent films - "The Starving Games" and "Best Night Ever" - were bombs which only made a few million each.

‘Reservoir Dogs’ Meets ‘Buried’ in New ‘VANish’ Movie Images

Ready for Reservoir Dogs meets Buried? That’s what first-time writer-director Bryan Bockbrader is going for with his feature debut, VANish. As the title suggests, the film involves a van, but not just a couple of shots of the vehicle or scenes of the main players riding around in it, but rather, a narrative that takes place entirely inside that van.

Maiara Walsh’s (The Starving Games, Switched at Birth) character is kidnapped and then forced to embark on a bloody, murder-filled road trip with her captor. Been there, done that, right? Well, not exactly. What makes VANish a standout is that the viewer will experience the entire story from inside this vehicle as though he or she is ...
